You are going all out w the group challenge! LOVE IT!

Another love, your war challenge. I'd change it to conflict maybe. But I love war, it's what I study besides Science. Ideas... French Revolution, rape of Nanking is when Japense invaded China, Templars!! Crusades! Christians are good a war & torture! A personal favorite of mine is flyboys!!

That is a lot if ! But it's a topic that apparently excites me ;)

Mad Sci, I love war too! That's why I did war, not conflicts. And I love Masterpiece Theatre on Sunday Night :)

I would have to include books on Troy, mesopotamia, native American conflicts. It is all under war, genocide is another area that has my interest in this area.

I found this book and it's been on my shelf for awhile. Your post did a light bulb in my head. And I dug around until I found it. Might be up your alley as well. The Cool Woman  A Novel by John Aubrey Anderson by John Aubrey Anderson

Thanks Mad Sci, I just bought it on my NOOK.

Exodus by Leon Uris is about the beginnings of Israel and the numerous conflict right before and after it became a recognized state by the U.S. and U.N.

I'm starting The Cool Woman. I hope it's good. The cover just draws me in. If I loved Flyboys I know I'll enjoy this one. *fingers crossed*

Inside the Gender Jihad  Women's Reform in Islam by Amina Wadud was a good read too. The affects of religion on females.
